Bereavement affects people in different ways, there is no time limit and there is no right or wrong way to feel. We have advice on where you can go for help and support if you have lost a loved one.

Once the death has been registered, a funeral can be arranged. Most people use a funeral director, but you can also arrange a funeral yourself. The funeral can be paid for by money from the person's estate, from a financial scheme or by you, other family members or friends.

Funeral Payment (opens in a new window) may help if you will have difficulty paying for the funeral.

The  Bereavement Advice Centre (opens in a new window) has detailed advice and a printable guide to advise you what to do after someone dies.
